    Police: Nurse fatally stabbed while protecting patients

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/11/27/nursestabbed-protecting-patients/3763839/

    Family, friends and coworkers are mourning a 57-year-old Texas nurse who died while police said she was trying to protect her patients.

    Gail Sandidge, a nurse in the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, Texas, was pronounced dead Tuesday morning after the fatal stabbing attack by a man who hospital officials said was at the facility to visit his mother.

    The NurseTogether.com website said Sandidge liked reading, sewing and spending time with her family. She had been on the hospital staff since 1978, hospital CEO Steve Altmiller said during a press conference Tuesday.

    Police said the man's mother was having a procedure that morning and he thought they were trying to kill her....obviously disturbed.

    Ms. Sandidge is a hero IMO.

    A Longview capital murder trial under a judge's gag order continues to inch toward a full trial, though no date has been set for jury selection.

    Kyron Templeton, 25, of Longview was ordered by 124th District Judge Alfonso Charles earlier this month to undergo psychiatric examination in the latest publicly available filing in the case.

    This may be a dumb question, but how is the mother of the accused, does anybody know? I can't imagine what type of procedure she was having that would concern her son to the point of attacking medical personnel, thinking they were going to kill his mother!
    Will be interesting to find out what the psych eval reveals!
